By FreddyVegan 4 August 2012 172

Please visit www.aussiepigs.com.au to learn more and find out how you can help the thousands of pigs that are subjected to cruelty on this farm and by the pig industry.

Come on … in the end almost everything revolves around dudes oiling themselves up and posing for other dudes.

Well you would say that, wouldn’t you.

I love Bacon.. That is all..

Just shut the place down.

Cruelty is cruelty.

That is all.

Bacon is probably the most unhealthy meat you can buy. Very little protein, almost all fat. Avoid it like the plague if you are competing or on a bulking or cutting cycle. In fact avoid it altogether. The best meat to eat if you are into fitness or bodybuilding is kangaroo – high protein, almost zero fat.

There seems to be a swing away from bacon anyway. A few days ago I visited Woolies and the infamous $5.99 1kg Home Brand packs of bacon were gone and replaced by 300g packs. A case of Woolies being a good corporate citizen or a more health conscious society? Hopefully both.

Health and protein to fat ratios are not really the issues here, you know. You really can’t make a decision on every moral or political conundrum purely by the implications for bodybuilding.

It’s totally not gay.

This is an issue that is not just about vegetarianism/veganism but the ethics of food production and farming meat. There is nothing loopy about approaching meat production from a humanitarian point of view. The pictures of that piggery are disgusting, there is no excuse for this method of farming. Battery farming may not be ‘rape’ in the legal sense but it certainly lacks compassion for the welfare of the animal and is a torturous existence for hens. As consumers we can make a choice, or even go one step further an have your own backyard chooks.

Some of us choose to hunt our own meat. You can be guaranteed a free range venison or boar roast, rabbit pie, baked trout or redfin that was killed cleanly and humanely if you catch or shoot and butcher it yourself. You also get to commune with nature and get some exercise as you hike through state forests or meander along the banks of a quiet stream. You also help the environment and the preservation of native flora and fauna by removing introduced species from the ecosystem.

So kiddies, don’t turn vegan, turn hunter. You know it makes sense.

I think you’ll find that most people eat bacon BECAUSE IT’S AWESOME!!!

Very few of us are interested in oiling ourselves up and standing around half-naked flexing for the other guys in the gym to watch.

You might have better luck pitching this info to the new bar in Dickson I’ve heard so much about.

Activists from Animal Liberation can today confirm that both of Wally Perenc’s piggeries have CLOSED DOWN. A big thank you to everyone who called, emailed, or otherwise expressed their outrage, or raised awareness about pig farming in Australia by sharing our photos and videos.

However… Wally’s Piggery was never just a “rogue operator”. Animal Liberation has obtained the following horrifying footage from Ean Pollard’s Lansdowne Piggery in Young NSW, where hundreds and hundreds of pregnant pigs scream and thrash, trying in vain to escape their tiny metal cages (known as sow stalls) while showing signs of insanity and starvation. The single eight minute continuous shot isn’t “graphic”, but it’s still very difficult to sit through. Right now, hundreds of thousands of pigs across Australia are suffering in cages just like these.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y61YsJxEQ2s

Ean Pollard is the Chairman of the NSW Farmers Pork Committee – he’s a big name in the industry. The footage was originally to be aired by Channel Seven’s Today Tonight, who went to talk to Ean prior to a formal on-camera interview. He said he wouldn’t show them his sow stalls; when they told him they already had footage of his sow stalls, he apparently “freaked”. The day before the interview was to take place, the story was cancelled without explanation.

We’ve just relaunched our website, http://www.aussiepigs.com.au, where we’ll be adding more and more investigations. Here you can see photos from Lansdowne (with more photos and videos of the rest of the piggery coming soon), and additional videos from Allain’s Piggery and from Wally’s Piggery, including what it now looks like as an empty, haunting reminder of the hell that was once hidden within its crumbling walls. It’s important to remember that, were it not for the illegal instrusion by Animal Liberation activists, Wally would still now, one year later, be bludgeoning pigs to death with a sledgehammer.

The attack on the piggery in Young has made the front page of today’s edition of The Land. The other media have ignored it. I wonder why?

Absolutely, unfortunately the RSPCA does not share this view and Wally Perenc continues to operate.

I thought the RSPCA was trying to get a case together to take to the courts?

My own view is that I don’t eat meat, and I’ll only buy free range/organic meat for Mr Poetix. And he has to cook it and eat it in the dog kennel. (That’s a joke. We don’t have a dog kennel.)
